I never thought I'd ever be one to get a Dear John letter
It sure can make a body feel untogether
I read it through then I read it once more
Lord, I thought I was dyin, dropped the letter to the floor
Caught my head in my hands and I cried
You don't know how I cried

I went to see my doctor, told my doctor you got to help me
This hurtin' in my heart's been around since my darlin' left me
He said, son, I can cure your blues
I can give you pills if you want me to
But there ain't nothin' I can do for your kind of trouble

My luck ain't been too good the other day you know a mad dog bit me
I stopped to help a lady on the street and her husband hit me

Don't nothin' seem to make much sense to me
My whole world's gone crazy
I guess it's just a lesson, just a lesson of the pains of love

My luck ain't been too good the other day you know a mad dog bit me
I stopped to help a lady on the street and her husband hit me

Don't nothin' seem to make much sense to me
My whole world's gone crazy
I guess it's just a lesson, just a lesson in the pains of love
I guess it's just a lesson, just a lesson in the pains of love
Well, it must be a lesson, just a lesson in the pains of love
